from earlier this week, a look west up Channel from Third, with block 1 on the right (and the mysteriously missing hotel)



and they were working on Terry Francois Blvd near Mission Rock



this evening, a look at the west end of the Commons



Rutter views







the view into Dogpatch, where UCSF's future housing site can just be made out on either side of the first ramp



looking north toward UCSF's block 33



and back the other way, in the 'three corners' shot



Oooober

they poured the roadbed, which may be another step in the process to get Mission Rock St opened up from Third finally





elsewhere, the northernmost building of the Exchange is getting its skin



as seen from the SE



and the hated freeway view

the Exchange from the 'back' (west), looking along 16th



Rutter views







Uber (was reading they cancelled their Oakland expansion altogether; hope that doesn't augur anything for this site)



three corners



the little one across Mariposa from UCSF hospital



getting a little dark here, but, besides paving this section of Terry Francois Blvd around Mission Rock St, they've been working on the sidewalks on the west side of the street (TF), so appearing to progress toward opening Mission Rock soon



they're installing new traffic lights at the intersection of Channel and El Dorado (the street on either side of the future dog run), so this also seems to be moving toward an opening in the near future. what a difference that will make to traffic circulation in the area, when there is an east-west connection through MB south of the creek



Fourth St

I've been assuming that what it augurs is that when this site became available to them, they ended plans to put their HQ in Oakland and decided to put it here. So this site gains what Oakland loses.

they're starting in on the creekside portion of block 1



the west face of block 6



another look from SW



just some of the new street infrastructure UCSF has been putting in. new routes have been opened up through MB



and new perspectives



the Rutter views. they've tucked into the next parking lot to the south of the future school site, now that they had somewhere to move the UCSF shuttle vans







textures of the Exchange





looking north through UCSF's block 33 at UCSF, Chase Center, and Uber cranes



speaking of which, a new crane is going up at Uber's site





three corners



drilling equipment on site at UCSF block 23

I'm not aware that Uber ever planned to move their headquarters to Oakland. Uptown Plaza was only going to be an East Bay expansion.

^^Perhaps you are right. Every article on the subject refers to the Oakland building as their "Oakland Headquarters" but perhaps that's only as opposed to the "San Francisco Headquarters" which seems rather stupid to me (having 2 "headquarters" so close) but maybe that's what they intended. More Kalanik silliness--so glad he's gone (because now the company will probably survive the coming culling of the "unicorns").

Thumbs up

Thanks for all the updates.

I guess because its on Port property, but I can't believe the old 'San Francisco Eye Institute' building (at the foot of old Mission Rock, next to the boat club) has survived the redevelopment. I worked in the building for several years back in the late 80's and the place was dilapidated then!

Back then, the area was totally desolate. (It was the spot poor Unice got dumped in the movie "Whats Up Doc!") There was the 280 freeway stub, the old version of the China Basin Building and not much else... just us, the boat clubs, a huge dirty recycling center and the eventually the Espirt outlet.

That said, working out there was great.. real old school SF. We had most of our business meetings outside at The Ramp and get this--we kept a freezer full of fish to feed the seals. They would swim up to the pier and bark until we tossed them fish from the second floor windows!

is that the sort of nondescript one between where Jelly's used to be and the northernmost boat club? the one on the right in this google maps streetview screenshot?



thanks for sharing your memories! I worked at Third and Townsend-ish in the early 1990s and remember that that felt like the edge of town. I didn't know the name of King St back then.

I know where you are talking about, but no, I didn't know its name, either!

edit: a bit off-topic, but apropos of how things have changed, I was coincidentally by there at almost exactly the time you were writing your post today... this is what that block of Townsend looks like now, of course (looking east from Third)

Uber



with full crane



looking down Third



three corners



UCSF housing in Dogpatch, northern parcel

I thought they were making it into a park like the other side.

Surely that will be phased in, the water front creekside is such a tremendous asset...
